“Family Guy” is set to bow for its tenth season, even though it feels like it’s been going on for eternity.
Season ten of “Family Guy” doesn’t do much to differentiate itself from the others, rehashing its tired formula that’s been worn thin for years now.
Peter wants to start his own sushi restaurant, and when he learns that the lottery jackpot is absurdly high, he buys boxes of lottery tickets hoping to win. From there, the story becomes entirely predictable, despite the entirely unpredictable (yet typical) non sequitur moments.
For viewers who are OK with “Family Guy” never straying far from its formula, the season premiere won’t be much of a disappointment. The episode doesn’t waver much from its tried-and-true formula, and even includes a few chuckle-worthy moments, including one where some Jewish guys cat-call at loads of money that Peter’s transporting.
But therein lies the issue with the season premiere: It’s stale, even recalling “South Park” in a montage piece.
“Family Guy” will stick around just because its audience doesn’t mind keeping with the status quo. Creatively, however, “Family Guy” is still far from hitting the jackpot.
“Family Guy” will kickoff its tenth season Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
